Extensions are probably not up to date with the gnome-shell version... Either wait a few days/weeks or reinstall Fedora 16. I would suggest you to wait until extensions are up to date!

Best regards.

One of my friends installed the same fedora and he did not had any problems in installation
So i dont think it is because the extensions are not up to date...
Do i need to have any firefox plugin or something like that to install?

No, you don't need any plugin to install extensions. Did you disable some of the features Firefox comes with? Have you tried reinstalling Firefox?

Have you done any modifications to gnome? If you have, you could try setting it to default with the following command (NOTE: this will erase all of your personal settings). Press Alt + F2 ant type:
Code:
rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity .cache .dbus .dmrc .mission-control .thumbnails ~/.config/dconf/user ~.compiz*
There is a big chance this will not work but it's worth of trying.
After you do this, log out and log back in... Now go to extensions.gnome.org and try few of those extensions

God luck!

According to this you didn't configure the makefile correctly...

I'm not sure where, but I've already seen those kind of errors, and I believe that it had something to do with the 'unzip' package... Try to install it (unzip) and see if it helps.
